Here’s an eco-friendly idea to help keep your jewellery looking great: Keep those packets of silica gel that you find in shoe boxes and other packaging.  Tuck them in your jewellery box or anywhere you store jewellery.  They absorb humidity, which helps prevent tarnish.  Re-using silica gel packets keeps them out of the landfill, and working for you.

Of course, make sure they’re tucked away where youngsters won’t get at them, as they are dangerous if ingested.
